Coinstar Gift Card Exchange Kiosk

The fastest way to get cash for a gift card is to sell your card at a Coinstar Gift Card Exchange kiosk—the yellow one.

Gift Card kiosks (formerly owned by Coinstar) look like the green kiosk that sounds like a slot machine when people pour coins into the hopper. That’s not the machine you need. I’m talking about the counterpart called Gift Card Exchange. It’s yellow, it accepts gift cards in one of two ways and prints out a voucher for cash or delivers a Visa gift card in exchange immediately. Then all you do is take the voucher to a cashier and get paid. One of the benefits of Gift Card Exchange is that you will get your money immediately.

How much will you get?  Figure 80 cents on the dollar

Here’s the fastest way to get cash for gift cards:

  1. Check the balance of your gift card.
  2. Take the gift card to a Gift Card Exchange kiosk.
  3. Enter the gift card information into the system.
  4. Review the cash back offer and decide if you want to accept it.
  5. Upon acceptance, print the voucher.
  6. Take the voucher to a cashier and get paid.

Vending Kiosk – Goldstur Launches Jewelry Exchange Kiosks

Goldstϋr has deployed its automated kiosks for converting old or unwanted jewelry into cash or gift cards, in an agreement with Supervalu banner Cub Foods.  Goldstϋr kiosks are now in place at Cub stores in the Minnesota cities of Silver Lake, Stillwater, Midway, Coon Rapids and Apple Valley. 


Consumers can exchange their gold or silver jewelry for cash or gift cards in a secure and accurate process. For the retailer, this approach represents a new form of revenue that Goldstϋr can capture in addition to generating additional store traffic. Moreover, it can be a hedge against declining revenues from other in-store services.
The process takes two minutes and a $2 appraisal fee, with offers based on commodities market prices that are updated every hour. Consumers can choose from a cash receipt or store gift card as payout. If the consumer decides not to accept the bid as shown on the kiosk screen, they can simply decline the offer.
